Award-winning architect John Szot, founder of John Szot Studio and Brooklyn Digital Foundry, will lecture on Tuesday, April 8, as part of our 2014 Spring Talks series. We are extremely happy to collaborate again with John, after he guest edited our Aberration issue two years ago.
John’s practice focuses on the relationship between technology and the locus of meaning in the built environment.
The Brooklyn Digital Foundry was established in 1999 to serve the architectural community with digital communications support. Since then, the studio has grown to serve a global client base in various industries with visualization and marketing materials.
In his talk, John will discuss his project Architecture and the Unspeakable, a video in three parts presenting three speculative design proposals, each probing a pathological aspect of the built environment. During this event, John will premiere the third and last part of the project. To see the second part of the project, please visit his contribution to the Aberration issue.
The event will be hosted by The Logan Share, a co-working space in Logan Square run by George and Sarah Aye from the Greater Good Studio. Housed in a former furniture warehouse, this building benefits from 3,500 sq ft of lofted workspace, with white washed floors and ceiling, 45′ of north facing windows and 14′ ceilings.
